Formative assessment forms a key part of the medical school’s philosophy of learning. Formative assessment is designed to improve the learning experience, re-inforce learning objectives, and guide further learning. It is not used in a summative manner, to isolate those students who are doing well, or less well in their studies.
The formative assessment provided below will not be marked in any way, no records will be kept of how many people look at it, how often, or how they do. You can come back to here as often as you like, and feel encouraged to ask further questions.
